We are believed to achieve big things since little. These expectations were built up by people around us, from society to parents at home, to get into prestigious corporates, to have a great source of income in order to have a "successful" life. However, all you wanted to do are the little things. Cheering someone up, purchasing a box of homemade cupcakes for donation or even give your favourite food to someone who really need it.
For me, the little things count. The 10% extra work you put on your undergoing project or assignment, yes, it counts. People may not see it, but that does not mean it is not an effort. There are many things in life for us to focus. Most of the time, people will focus on the big things, a wide view of everything. However, if you take a look through a "microscope", you will see things, little accomplishments that someone else will celebrate.
Do not worry that you will not shine. Everyone shines in a different way. Some people have their spotlight on their career while others have it on their little arts and craft. We live different, feel different. So don't worry about it too much. I write about this because I have realize people will change their style just for someone or something. For example, the trend, your toxic friends etc.
As for me, I enjoy and will totally celebrate my minor achievements. Like if I finally finish reading a book out of the whole on the shelf or if I had written an entry on my blog and found a suitable photo for it, I will stare at my blog for half of the day. Crazy as it seems, but I am not lying. 😁
Achievements, big or small, just celebrate them if you can.
A secret from myself, the little things inspired me to write most of the entries in my blog. They do count!
"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way."
With hopes and loves,
